Neighborly Contempt in Oceanside

Squabbling Oceanside neighbors need yet another lawsuit to resolve enforcement of shared driveway settlement made in prior lawsuit.

The case of Howeth v. Coffelt, Court of Appeal State of California, Fourth District, Division One, involved a dispute between two neighbors with ocean view homes adjacent to each other.  The homes shared one driveway.  The neighbors consistently bickered over the use of the driveway.  Eventually the dispute resulted in a lawsuit.  This Appellate case held that the parties needed another lawsuit to enforce the settlement reached in the first lawsuit.

The Appellate Court noted that the appropriate procedure to seek enforcement of a court order is contempt.
